To the Class of 1941 



T70U WILL always remember that your college years were not spent in an 
academic isolation, far removed from the struggle of civilized peoples against 
a barbarism that seeks to destroy all that the free spirit of man holds of supreme 
worth. This war continues, and calls you now to active service. Some go to 
the armed forces to give of their physical and mental strength in the conflict of 
battle. Most of you go to a service equally essential for the preservation of a 
free civilization, and one that will call for a like unswerving faith, for loyalty and 
fortitude. To teach is front-line service for the great victory of peace; for you 
fight directly against the forces upon which barbarism depends, — ignorance, 
hate, prejudice and superstition. You will keep alive the fire of divinity in man 
when darkness threatens to overcome humanity. 

My wish for you is that no cynicism or despair will ever quench this fire in 
your own hearts. 

Grover C. Bowman

To Our Class Advisor . . 

this book is dedicated to Mr. Flagg, who has 

worked and played with us throughout our college 
years, whose advice we have sought frequently, whose 
art courses we have elected consistently and almost 
unanimously. 

Thank you for never letting us take the skirmishes 
too seriously and for always being our staunch ally.

•"PHE CALL is "All out for Uncle Sam" and here at State Teachers College every 
man Jack and every girl Jill is finding a job in the scheme for winning the 
war. The college has become a seat of training and preparation for a group of 
reserve soldiers, marines and teachers who are few in number but great in 
earnest, patriotic zeal. 

Many of the young men are formally enlisted in the military and marine 
reserves, and several have already left for active service. 

Those who are still here are preparing to battle that fifth columnist Ignorance 
as he threatens the youngsters of our nation. No smart uniforms nor trim-sound- 
ing titles await these reserves. They won't even have cute coveralls and factory 
hats designed by Sally Victor. They will go about their work in ordinary clothes, 
under commonplace circumstances, but they will have answered the call to service 
as truly and honestly as a patriot can. 

S.T.C. is a training camp in every sense of the word. Commander-in-chief 
Bowman and his Chiefs- of-staff, the faculty, have set high standards. They have 
armed the reserves with the wisdom of the classics. Their manual of instruction 
has been the best of the old and the new in learning. The strategy they teach has 
been tested by experience and found effective. Regular inspections have been 
held twice a year and few of the troops were found wanting. Organized drill 
in the gymnasium kept the troops supple and alert, and manoeuvres in the train- 
ing school gave them experience which will be valuable in the real battle. 

The reserves of S.T.C. stand at attention ready for the call to active duty.

l"PHE NEW recruits came streaming into camp fifty (thousand?) strong, in the 
unregimented attire of mere civilians. However, we were issued our uni- 
forms very soon, — orange bibs bearing our insignia and orange caps, the sign of 
our rank (or lack of it) as inductees. This was back in the autumn of '39. 
Members from our ranks became prominent in all functions. We joined all 
associations, and by our initiative and resourcefulness in such feats as our success- 
ful camouflaging of the gym into a cornfield and the recreation hall into the North 
Pole, we demonstrated our possibilities as future leaders. Our primary training 
was strenuous, but lead by Corporal Roch we took our first step up and became 
buck privates. 

After the extended summer furlough most of us returned to camp, where we 
proudly donned the single stripe and became first class privates. We were put 
in charge of the new recruits and spared no efforts to teach these rookies obedi- 
ence and respect, and to initiate them into camp life. During this period we put 
on a dance for the whole camp, which (we say this in all modesty) surpassed all 
entertainments previously enjoyed. With groves of palm trees that reached the 
ceiling, thatched huts, and lei-bedecked dancers, we transformed the social hall 
into beautiful Hawaii. We had such success with this enterprise that we put on 
a barn dance later in the year, changing the gym into a very realistic barn for the 
occasion. In spite of having to teach the finer points of square dancing to most 
of those who attended, an hilarious time was had by all, and once again we were 
acclaimed for our ingenuity. 

In September of '41 we returned from summer leave fewer by many in num- 
ber, but full of ambition and overflowing with knowledge. "Nothing can hold 
us down now!" We took on the task of overseeing the new recruits and protect- 
ing them from over-zealous sophs. As sergeants our problems and duties had 
grown much more numerous and difficult, but we mastered them and looked for- 
ward to our first period of officer training. Soon after we entered the training 
school our immediate superior, Master Sergeant Whitman, informed us of the 
competitive stunt night at camp. Of course, our regiment walked off with the 
trophy and honors for having done an excellent job. 



32 



We also staged a dance at the Masonic Temple in a setting of fir trees and little 
white fences. A queen was crowned with a gardenia tiara and surrounded with 
beautiful attendants. The fame of our fair lady spread for miles around — even 
to Boston. Since our entrance into camp we have set high standards! 

At last — the final step before we would be commissioned. We were really 
important now, we thought, — the top kicks in camp. We held the chief offices 
in the clubs and associations. We captured the plaque on stunt night with our 
highly ingenious glorified vaudeville show. We staged a combination carnival 
and circus complete with games (on some the victim didn't have a chance), a 
troupe of imported tumbling clowns, and real, live animals. On the slightest 
provocation we gave ourselves parties. There was a grand one at the residence 
of our advisor, Chief-Of-Staff Flagg, at which we were initiated into the mysteries 
of a game called (appropriately enough) Artist. And there were parties at the 
quarters of our fellow officer Eddy, and at Card's quarters. 

Before we knew what was happening, we were back in training again, where 
we worked long hard hours, inspired always with the thought, "It won't be long 
now." As our training came to a close, a dance was given in our honor by the 
juniors. It was a very impressive affair, which we deeply appreciated and heartily 
enjoyed. As the climax to all our striving drew near, we found that fewer than 
half had stuck to the end, but we had grown closer together as our ranks were 
depleted, and worked diligently to make up in quality what we lacked in quantity. 
Finally training and the last inspection were over. The long-awaited time had 
arrived. Seated before Commander-in-Chief Bowman, and surrounded by the 
members of the camp, our relatives and our friends, we were reminded what this 
commission meant to us in duties and responsibilities. We solemnly filed up to 
the reviewing stand and received our commissions. We had reached our goal, 
and were commissioned teachers, but another, greater goal was ahead of us, one 
that could be reached only in the battle that is everyday living.

9vq, Olatiost 



THAT this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom" expresses 
now as it did in 1863, eighty years ago, why the generation of today, young, 
and perhaps to you, still unsettled, is willing to take its place in step with the long 
columns of those fighting to maintain the four freedoms "everywhere in the 
world." History, in its breathless hurry, made a note of these blueprints for 
freedom by which "proud and decent citizens of the whole world could live in 
pride and decency, at any time and at any place." We make up a small design of 
the infinite pattern of that body of proud citizens, but as we go out to shape, to 
guide, and to mould the minds and personalities of many more young Americans 
you are wondering how much of our indoctrination will be able to take root and 
flourish. 

You, America, are wondering what criteria you can use to evaluate the standards 
held by us, the younger generation who are a part of the vast class of nineteen 
hundred forty-three. You are wondering whether we will accept the dogmas of 
democracy; you are wondering to what extent we can identify ourselves with the 
causes of freedom and whether we will risk our fortunes and, if need be, our lives 
in behalf of America. 

We, too, are wondering, wondering not despairingly, but sincerely, how we can 
live so as best to fulfill the tasks which are before us. We are wondering whether 
we can reach those goals that you, our parents and our faculty, have placed so high 
above us. 

In our enthusiasm and patriotism, we are filled with certainty that we can and 
we will answer the call to arms and to freedom. We have shown you the answer 
to one of the questions by the absence of some who belong here with us today. 
We shall continue throughout life to show you the solutions as we see them. 

You will find in us an unmistakable belief that each individual must have 
democratic rights, privileges and opportunities. It will be upon these beliefs 
that we can continue to build that "new nation conceived in liberty." 



34 



We want a democratic way of life. We will accept the dogmas of democracy. 
We will identify ourselves with the causes of freedom until aggression is wiped 
from the surface of the earth or until we die. 

We go into a world at war, — not in despair, not cowed by some swastika or 
bayonet, not without a voice and will to speak, not without religion, and so not 
afraid. Life is not so dreary, so futile, so unavailing as that generation between two 
wars would have us think. Every dawn fashions a beautiful new day; every 
twilight finishes the pattern. 

The "purple mountain majesties" that you see about you have imparted strength 
to us these past four years. They embody the essence of proudness that we have 
for America. We are proud that we can speak; proud that we can worship; proud 
that we can share; proud that we are unafraid; proud that we can salute the flag 
that represents "liberty and justice for all." The members of this class have 
found that we can help America most by sharing our knowledge. Quietly, 
patiently, while trumpets blare for those of us on the battle fronts, we at home will 
strive to overcome the enemies of youth. While those on the line of battle, those 
in the spacious skies, those on the surly seas fight to reconstruct a world where 
there can be freedom, we at home will be on the march to prepare the hearts and 
minds of those who will carry the ideals of democracy forward. These ideals 
were yours; they are ours; they will be theirs. We shall take our place as we 
"quicken the indolent, encourage the eager, steady the unstable." No trumpets 
will blare for us; for us there will be no golden decorations. Our reward will 
be found in your recognition of what we have added to the well-being of America. 
Our reward will come when the light from the lamp of learning shines back to 
cheer us as it leads young America forward. 

When we are certain that 

"The state of this nation is good, 
the heart of this nation is sound, 
the spirit of this nation is strong, 
the faith of this nation is eternal," 

it will be little wonder that "this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of 
freedom."

SENIORS: Carry out these orders with caution and perseverance. Advance 
outside the college campus and maintain these various positions until further 
notice is given. 

CARD: Keep MOLLOY awake, and once you have done so, see that you are 
not hindered from rapid movement by undo clutter of his feminine admirers. 
Take your places quickly at Quantico so as to insure immediate reinforcement 
of marines already there. Heavy rubber boots and water wings will be supplied 
before you leave. 

WHITMAN and GREEN: Take up your posts in the largest army kitchen in 
the United States and keep the men fortified with samples of your "home made" 
delicacies. Whitman, as Staff Sergeant, shall give Rooky Green a severe pre- 
liminary training in the arts a la cuisine, — he must really learn to cook! Keep at 
it, Whitman! Remember, fatigue duty will really clinch each recipe! Both of 
you will be most valuable in maintaining the rugged constitutions of our soldiers 
in order that they may withstand all dangers. And remember this: — your main 
job will be to tickle the palates of our men in such a way that they will be glad to 
cut the throats of the enemy! 

STONE and BENSON: Advance to the F. B. I. headquarters in Washington 
and set up a bureau for the purpose of getting free secret information from the 
enemy. The postage will be prepaid and special vaults will be set aside for you 
in the Post Office building. The F. B. I. will furnish you with the needed ad- 
dresses. 

EDDY: Join the WAAC's and keep a file showing the whereabouts of all the 
positions of the men, including Army, Navy, and Marines. This you will do by 
more or Jess personal contact. Approach all relationships cautiously so that no 
strained situations will arise. Your former experience has recommended you for 
this work. 

PARSONS and WEBSTER: Remove to Williamstown and hold the Cadets 
there at bay until the main body of troops arrive. 

PHELPS and LYONS: Cover the rural front and keep the children free from 
all malicious encounters. Keeping their teeth brushed and their faces clean and 
preparing them mentally and physically for adult maneuvers will do much to 
build up the needed resistance. 



36 



CAMERON: Advance to Louisville, Kentucky, and take over the radio pro- 
gram, "A Song for You," which is on the air Monday night from 11:30 - 12:00 
midnight. You will be releasing valuable manpower for the United States Army! 
(A wisher for Fischer — "I hear music when I think of you".) 

RITA CARD: Situate yourself in a nearby school in the capacity of teacher 
and fill in your outside hours by writing bales of letters and shipping crates of 
cookies to the Marine Corps. This division will need special morale building, 
and affection shown this way on the home front will aid much in winning the war! 

MEADE: You shall start reconnaissance work at once! In view of your past 
training it has been suggested that you report to headquarters immediately the 
living and working problems of all our troops, both at their regular stations and 
on their maneuvers. Check especially the telephone service. This will be most 
important in the sending and receiving messages. We are counting on you, 
Meade, as a person most capable of carrying on this job. 

BLANCHARD: Report all the activities of the above units to the main office. 
A jeep will be furnished you for transportation purposes. You will also be given 
a secret code in which all the dispatches must be written. Keep your information 
accurate and up to date! Start your reports immediately. 

Issued this 6th day of June, 1943 
Signed: Shirley Crompton, 
Officer of the Day 

CROMPTON: Remove to Arkansas to head a committee of one to raise and 
maintain the morale of the Sergeants. One of your first duties will be to supply 
each Sergeant with a jar of pickles. Do not allow any of the men to write a letter 
to himself and then send it to his wife. I know you will do an excellent job in 
carrying out these orders, but proceed with caution. 

Issued this 6th day of June, 1943

Aide-de-camp

TRADITION tells us that the time is here 
When seniors must implant an ivy shoot, 
A symbol of ideals which they will hold 
Throughout the struggles that the future brings; 
So here by college walls we plant it deep 
To clamber over gates we soon must leave. 

In fancy let us walk through other gates, 
Where men and women master great machines; 
We'll watch a common scene that's taking place 
And hear a woman's earnest poignant voice: 

"It's a letter from my boy, my soldier son. 

He's well thank God but missing home. 

He speaks about swamp pinks and wonders if 

I'll get some for the house; (he always did). 

Big bunches — light and deeper pink, 

Fragrant as anything, spicy but sweet. 

He writes about such unimportant things, — 

Our garden and his dog, my speckled hens. 

I guess he likes to shut the war outside, 

Those moments when he writes and thinks of home." 

A woman with her talisman of love, 

Standing among the crowds of laborers. 

She says, "Who knows how much we hope and pray, 

We who have sent our menfolk to the war. 

Just little made-up prayers, not from a book: 

They're true and plain, that plain folks understand. 

I guess the world is turning back to God, 

To faith and hope and Bible charity. 

Strength comes from God, the courage that you need 

To stand and do the thing you have to do. 

It's hard sometimes. . ." She turns to work again, 

Still dreaming of swamp pinks and other years. 

More thoughtful when we see reality, 
We pause, look back to other years, then turn 
To face what comes and do the work we must, 
While here the ivy roots take hold and grow.

(Tune: Auld Lang Syne) 
HPHE evening shadows gently fall 

And veil the distant hills, 
The mountains echo back the call 
Of trickling winding rills; 
And through the haze of gathering night 
Shines yet the light of day, — 
The light of happy fellowship 
At S. T. C. N. A. 

And though the class of '43 

May scatter 'cross the land, 

Still may the bond of friendship be, 

And bind us, hand to hand; 

Though miles between us may be great, 

Our thoughts shall ever stray 

To days when we were loyal friends 

At S. T. C. N. A.

fju+tiai eMtito-lAf, 



IN SEPTEMBER 1942, eleven alert Master Sergeants from '44 Battalion were 
detailed by the Intelligence to North Adams on a mission which need not be 
revealed here. (Records will be shown on presentation of proper credentials.) 
Technical Sergeant Fitzgerald relayed the orders as received: the detail were to 
become to all appearances embryonic instructors. "Elementary!" they com- 
mented inwardly as they grimly straightened their shoulders. Conscientiously 
they undertook an intensive study of the Manual for Non Corns, then translated 
its precepts into terse, explicit, motivating commands to the Mark Hopkins be- 
ginners in the army of Education. Occasionally they were thrown off guard in 

those days when some upstart showed That Spark of Comprehension but 

such mishaps occurred rarely. It should be observed that so well were orders 
carried out that Commander-in-Chief Bowman presented many citations at a 
special review. 

The story behind the fact is no tale of routine obedience to explicit com- 
mands. Many a time did this group make sacrifices which were not required. 
We might tell how the heroic eleven guarded all entrances to the Taconic Barracks 
for two hours with full equipment against the arrival of an expected platoon of 
Naval Aviation Cadets. And, as though this were not enough, they bore their 
share in the task of making the young men feel welcome for an entire evening. 

On the lighter side, these exemplary warriors occasionally found themselves 
with a few hours leave. The time was invariably used in combining pleasure 
with voluntary service to some deserving cause. One instance was the demon- 
stration of the principles of nutrition at the hamburger grill in C. of C. Bowman's 
back yard. Another was the formation of a convoy for a group of inductee fresh- 
men through the perils of the first few weeks of the semester. They also gave 
them (free) instructions in the morale building qualities of the moving picture. 
Mental and physical wellbeing is maintained at a high level by many hours of 
organ displacement at the Weston Abrasium. 

At the annual stunt night they proved by methods both scientific and rational 
the strategy of modern living. This detail also cooperated fully in paying tribute 
to the Lieutenant Seniors who received commissions in June. 

These are the facts in brief and to date. At this time, a year from now, con- 
clusive evidence as to the merit of this singular aggregation will be presented.

SapJtosnobe <JtHta>uf, 



A TTENTION! Report immediately to your Chiefs-of-Staff to be assigned 
your new duties as Platoon Sergeants." These were the first words we 
heard upon returning to camp from our summer furloughs. Our first official act 
in our new capacity was that of initiating a detachment of rookies into the ways 
of army life. This assignment being carried out successfully, we settled into the 
regular army routine once more. 

Drills, maneuvers, and similar duties took up most of our time, leaving us 
only a few hours for relaxation, during which we occasionally got a pass to go 
into town. A special privilege was granted to the Platoon Sergeants and the 
Privates to hold a dance for the whole camp at one of the canteens. This pro- 
vided a welcome diversion and both officers and men gave it excellent support. 
The atmosphere created by this affair was soon dispersed by the necessity of 
preparing for our rigorous exams, which would determine whether we deserved 
to remain in our present rank. The results proved our preparation well worth- 
while, however, for we all retained our positions. 

Our abilities were further proved by the successful accomplishment of a secret 
mission, the outcome of which was determined at Stunt Night before an assembly 
of the whole camp. After this event, our daily pattern of life was resumed and we 
directed our efforts toward acquiring the skills and knowledge necessary for pro- 
motions to a higher rank.

TNDUCTEES! Twenty-six from all parts of the state, seeking entrance to the 
S.T.C. training grounds. Private 1st Class James Sinderman was their leader 
and he found them malleable material, responsive to his commands. Their 
"superiors," the sophs, found them less malleable as they underwent the initiatory 
endurance tests, for they emerged a Wise-r little bunch of buck privates but un- 
subdued. 

In order to demonstrate to the ardent upper-class character-builders their 
ingenuity, field efficiency and general all-around handiness, the b.p.s held Hal- 
lowe'en maneuvers in appropriate season. The first part of the evening was 
devoted to a mild (?) toughening-up program, designed to make any soph long for 
truce, but so much fun was provided for the rest of the affair that all was forgiven. 

On the Mountain Day hike these valiant youngsters marched in the hot sun 

for miles, through dense forests, up peaks, down cliffs and all this without 

the slightest drop in morale. 

As their company began to shape up into a well-trained group, they felt the 
need of a little relaxation. They combined forces with the sophs to brief and 
execute a brilliant dance at the Richmond Hotel, when they were acclaimed the 
heroes of the hour. 

The Christmas season found them a lonely little troop, far from home and 
family, but the annual furlough restored their spirits and bolstered their morale 
so that they were able to meet action on the scholastic line, exams. From their 
ranks rose two who won honor positions on the Commander-in-Chief Bowman's 
merit list and brought tears of pride to the eyes of the faculty. 

Stunt night found them at the mercy of a brigade of lively gremlins who 
tormented the studious freshmen. Apparently these gremlins later overran the 
whole school.

STUDENT COUNCIL 

^^lENERAL CAMERON and her capable staff of buck privates, sergeants, second 
^"*^ lieutenants and majors met late in September to plan their line of attack 
for the coming year. 

This capable group, realizing the necessity of keeping up the morale on the 
home front, so that the stepped-up war curriculum might be maintained, organized 
the Taconic Hall Service Club, open every Friday night to all the companies on 
the campus. Here were seen and enjoyed the best of entertainments. 

The staff, too, undertook a patriotic duty of financial assistance to the war 
effort. One of the steps taken towards this goal was the urgent sale of war stamps, 
a unified drive carried on efficiently and effectively by selected officers. The army 
of students felt the need and value of such a drive and rose in a body to meet the 
call. 

Under the supervision of the council and one of the chiefs-of-staff the P. X. 
(Book Store) again offered first rate supplies to the reserves. As usual, it proved 
to be the most popular place on the campus at the beginning of each new basic 
training period. 

The tactics for the defense program of the year had to be manipulated very 
carefully and tactfully so that everyone might share in their planning. To meet 
this perplexing problem, a general meeting was scheduled for every third Tues- 
day of the month. During this discussion all reserves voiced their opinions, 
suggestions and criticisms. This was most helpful in solving the weighty prob- 
lems, for everyone felt at liberty to offer helpful advice and in so doing aided the 
council in executing the orders of the day.

W. A. A. 

TT'VERY reserve, from yardbird to General, needs mental relaxation from duties 
^~ J occasionally, in order to keep her work effective. The W. A. A. is a group of 
feminine "relaxees" who are proficient in this art. They offer an all-round 
sports program which includes games for all types — the non-muscular, slightly 
muscular, and super-muscular. 

To insure the validity of this program, three "selectees" were sent to Framing- 
ham in order to secure first-hand knowledge of what other camps were doing 
to keep physically fit. These came back impressed with the idea that a sound body 
as well as a sound mind was needed for carrying on the war effort. Although no 
signs of hypertrophy have since appeared, "Little muscles are fast to bigger 
muscles growing." 

Mountain Day found the W.A.A. part of a searching party realistically experi- 
encing some of the feats performed daily by our forces in New Guinea and the 
jungles of Panama. Although a bivouac for the night was feared necessary, 
success was obtained before darkness fell. 

This organization also contributed its bit to the Service Club performances 
and some Commando action was seen here in the tracking down of the "Scaven- 
ger" in the Scavenger hunt. 

The troops of S. T.C.N. A. have derived from this club many benefits which 
can be used in fighting the battle on every front.

M.A.A. 

Company S. T. C, Batallion M. A. A. reporting: 

TATE WERE called to active duty September, 1942. After due consultation and 
deliberation we joined forces with those of the women's division, the 
W.A.A., to form the Outing Club. This enlargement of the troops enabled us to 
carry out several effective and successful campaigns, during which many miles of 
land were taken and many bowling pins were forced to admit defeat. 

This joint club did not prevent us from acting as a single unit. On the basket- 
ball field, though unaided and almost alone, we showed much valour. At the 
Friday night entertainments of the Service Club we showed our ingenuity and 
loyalty to the camp by always providing for refreshments. We have always taken 
active interest in every drill and maneuver of the S. T. C. Campus. 

Our outstanding feat of the year was our benefit entertainment given at the 
Service Club. We kept the W.A.A.'s under a constant shell bombardment of wit 
and humor. This campaign was the major triumph of the year. 

From this account it can be deduced that batallion M.A.A. has carried out and 
performed successfully all its operations, both on the home front and abroad.

GLEE CLUB AND CHOIR 

FROM: ME 

TO: The editor of this here book 

SUBJECT: Account of the activities of the Glee Club and Choir: 

1. Activities for the most part have consisted of long hours of drill and in- 
spection in preparation for appearances, such as the Friday night camp show, the 
part in the Christmas Candlelight Pageant. 

2. Reconnaissance at several assemblies for the purpose of determining the 
best means of attacking the audience. 

3. A requested tour to delight the many clubs and organizations in and 
around North Adams. 

4. Concentrated training in the months of February and March for the annual 
spring concert — which was a success and brought honors to the singers and their 
leaders. 

Our principal objectives accomplished, we close this report and await assign- 
ments in U.S.O. camps anywhere in this world — and we mean anywhere in THIS 
world.

DRAMA CLUB 

■"PHE DRAMA Club hesitates to use the term "offensive" in connection with 
the season's campaign, but on the other hand they have never needed to be 
on the "defensive" concerning their tactics. 

Like the U.S.O. and other organizations of its kind, the club frankly admits its 
worth as a morale-builder. Any man's army needs entertainment, and especially, 
good entertainment. The Friday night skirmish put on by this group at the Ser- 
vice Club was no dimout in regards to fun and frivolity. In February they present- 
ed a highly visionary one-act play called "Right About Face," which was so far 
ahead of its time that men fainted and strong women turned pale as they viewed 
the world of the future. When taken on the road and given for a local organiza- 
tion, it met with great success. 

The dust of battle had barely settled when the club began work on a colossal 
intra-mural undertaking late in the spring. Surely they are a dauntless group, 
whose middle name is "Hard work."

CURRENT EVENTS CLUB 

' I 'HE Current Events Club serves as official War Bureau of Information for 
S.T.C., and as such, they make every effort to obtain firsthand news of world 
events and disseminate it among the students. 

The club introduced to the student body Professor Cru of the Williams 
faculty, who gave us an up-to-the-minute explanation and prophetic opinion on 
the activities of the Free French. Exciting news from abroad reached us through 
Charles H. Parker as he described realistically and from personal experience the 
situation and circumstances of Allied prisoners of the Japanese. 

This year of (censored) the club instituted a reception in honor of the fresh- 
men, that they might view the plans for the year and be encouraged to join the 
forces with the older members. On an eventful and significant Friday evening, 
a new front was opened up in the social room at Taconic Hall, as we listened to 
correspondents from abroad, giving the inside story from the great cities of the 
world. Our activities did not halt here for the members verbally assaulted each 
other over various war problems while Mr. Luddy tried to plan the peace.

HOUSE COUNCIL 

Reports From the Council of Behavior Tactics of Taconic Hall 

"PARLY in the winter an endurance test was given the enlistees to ascertain their 
^ J ability to withstand sub-zero conditions. The call to "fall-in" was given at 
6:30 A.M. and the ranks, breakfast-less and scantily-clad, marched to the nearest 
exit to take up positions on the fire escape. After a period of exposure in the 
rather cold-ish wintry dawn, the troops returned to quarters. Remarkably few 
casualties were reported. 

During the annual barracks Christmas party their excellent stamina was ob- 
served when a surprise black-out took place. All rules and regulations were 
carried out expeditiously. 

The sociability and comradeship of those in the barracks have been unexcelled. 
The Valentine supper and dance given to the navy cadets was such a success that 
several of our members have been in demand at Williamstown ever since. The 
girls, that same evening, showed great fortitude in withstanding gnawing hunger 
when mess was delayed, and displayed much vitality in the field of the dance. 
Because of military caution, all the facts concerning this affair cannot be given 
out at this time. 

Military courtesy has been given special emphasis this year. General Reynolds 
held half hour classes every Monday evening so that all, from lowest to highest in 
rank, would be prepared to face any situation which might arise. We gently fan 
the dying embers of the social amenities in this dark age. 

This record is submitted as proof of an active, profitable year.

7\ LTHOUGH the yearbook does not compare with the Kodiak "Bear," the 
^^ magazine of the American troops in Alaska, or the "Stars and Stripes," the 
daily paper of the American troops in England, in circulation or coverage, we can 
say that our publication like theirs is meant for a special public and like theirs 
our articles and pictures have been selected because they are what our readers 
want. 

Since the class of '43 is relatively few in number, a new system was used in 
organizing the staff and getting the various tasks done. The department editors — 
Photography, Art and Literary — and the business managers acted as chairmen of 
committees. Every member of the class worked on one committee or another, 
and we mean worked! This type of organization was possible only because of 
the fine spirit of cooperation and persistence in the job to be done which the class 
exhibited. Special thanks are due to Mr. Flagg and Miss Underhill, our faculty 
advisors, for hours of patient work.

SPECIAL DISPATCH FROM HEADQUARTERS 

SINCE Pearl Harbor, December 7, 1941, the students at S.T.C. have been 
mobilizing, and we have seen action on several fronts. It is now possible to 
make public information concerning the work accomplished here. 

During the school year of '41-42 classes in First Aid and Child Study were 
organized. The class of '43 is proud to announce that every one of its members 
has passed the standard course in First Aid. A large percentage of underclassmen 
has also obtained certificates. Through the efforts of Miss Boyden, who made 
arrangements for a series of lectures by experts, we have all become authorities 
on the subject of "The Care of Little Evacuees and Other Children." Many of 
the girls got some experience at the Saturday morning kindergarten which was 
held at Mark Hopkins School. Yards and yards of Red Cross yarn were trans- 
formed into sweaters and socks under Miss Weston's direction. That same year 
the student council became disbursement officers of a fund made up from the con- 
tributions of each club and class. They were able to purchase an operating lamp 
and oxygen masks for the North Adams Hospital. Some of the more rugged, 
healthy students answered the hospital's call for blood donations and others 
placed their names on the list of available donors in the event of an emergency. 

The autumn of 1942 saw an air raid drill which, under the direction of Mr. 
Luddy and his air raid wardens, was a model of efficiency and order. To prevent 
any serious lowering of morale, the students held an impromptu group sing as they 
huddled in their "shelter." That same autumn also saw the men students busily 
ridding the attic and basements of the college buildings of all potential fire 
hazards and, with the guidance of the janitors, constructing snuffers and sandbags. 

A booth was set up in the corridor of the main hall and decorated by mysteri- 
ous brownies. Here Betty Phelps and, since March, Esther Green offer great 
bargains in war stamps. Do we regret to say that although a large number of 
stamps have been sold no profit was made? 

Some of the students were regular attendants at the evening War Problems 
Forums which were sponsored by the faculty committee (Mr. Luddy, Dr. Broudy, 
Miss Durnin). In general the juniors passed out the pencils and papers for ques- 
tions, while the seniors and a few miscellaneous students tried to fill up the 
auditorium. They became so interested that they even asked questions. 

No mention is made here of the work of individual girls in boosting the 
morale of the boys in uniform. These girls were persuaded to sacrifice a whole 
evening in order to entertain at a buffet and dance a group of the naval air cadets 
stationed at Williams. Statistics are not available however concerning the num- 
ber of letters mailed to boys in the armed services or the number of hours actually 
spent trying to amuse and entertain those on leave. Questioned as to this noble 
work, one patriotic senior girl said simply, "It was my duty."
